Alejandro Ruiz and 'Momo' González form new hard-hitting duo

The second big new partnership in World Padel Tour has been announced as Alejandro Ruiz revealed he will be playing with Momo González for the remainder of the 2022 season.

Two hard-hitters from Malaga, Ruiz and González will unquestionably form one of the most bombastic and fast-paced duo in the Circuit, and will make their debut at the Brussels Padel Open in a few weeks' time. They will form the seventh-seeded pairing as things stand.

Ruiz's former team-mate Franco Stupaczuk, with whom he won his first two World Padel Tour titles in 2021, has already disclosed he will continue with Brazilian ex-number one Pablo Lima.

Alex Ruiz in 2021: break-out season

Before uniting with Stupa ahead of the 2021 season, Ruiz had never been in a final of an Open or Master event in World Padel Tour.

The Argentinian-Spanish duo then reached consecutive finals to start the year and eventually won their first title together at the Sardegna Open. They would win another at the CDMX Open to finish the season as the fourth-seeded duo.

After two quarter-final and semi-final exits to start 2022, the duo decided to split in the almost month-long break between Alicante and Brussels.

Ruiz, a break-out player in 2021, will now unite with the young star Momo González, who hails from Málaga just like Ruiz.

Momo González: High highs and Master Final debut

The stand-out achievement in 2021 for Jerónimo González, better known as Momo, will have been when the then 24-year-old reached the final of the Santander Open alongside his partner Javi Rico. It was Momo's first-ever Open final.

Rico and González would also win two Challenger events in Marbella and La Nucía and reach the final in Lerma. This underlined their status as one of the most exciting young partnerships in WPT.

González was drafted into the Estrella Damm Master Final at the end of the season to play alongside Pablo Lima, his first outing at the most coveted tournament of them all. While going out in the quarter-finals, it was a great showing nonetheless.

In 2022, González and Rico never managed to get past the round of 16 in the first four tournaments.
